Joanna C. Peck

With almost twenty years of prior business experience in real estate, investment banking, and finance, Ms. Peck has established an outstanding record of achieving successful results through every aspect of real estate litigation, including due diligence, drafting, discovery, motion practice, trial, settlement, and appeal.   She has a broad expertise in the areas of adjacent construction disputes, Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law (“RPAPL”) Section 881 matters, party wall disputes, housing discrimination, professional malpractice, noise disputes, nuisance cases, and real estate valuation disputes.
